App finally makes it to Windows 7 desktops

Yesterday, an unofficial link to Facebook's Messenger for Windows 7 surfaced. Today, Facebook has responded by making an official download available (direct download). Desktops will be the last platform to have received the app, following dedicated releases for iOS devices, Android phones and tablets, BlackBerrys, and Windows Phones.

Initial release of the app for Windows desktops will include the chat function, the ticker feed of friends' activity, and Facebook notifications. It also incorporates a docking function. Facebook has indicated that future releases will include chatting with multiple friends, video calling, the option to limit chat availability, and editing settings. [via ZDNet]
